LibriVox recording of The Adventures of Sally by P.G. Wodehouse.
Read by Kara Shallenberg.
This romantic comedy stars a young American girl named Sally, who inherits a considerable fortune and finds her life turned upside down. The typically Wodehouseian cast includes Sally’s ambitious brother, an assortment of theater people, a pair of English cousins, and, of course, an Uncle. It’s jolly good fun!

Great Reader, Good Book
I believe Kara Shallenberg could read a manual on how to use a new coffee maker or toaster and make it sound interesting. I am genuinely sincere when I say she reads everything in a manner that makes it come to life with the sparkle of her kind and gentle manner. God bless you Kara.
As usual, Wodehouse wrote with his wonderful way of making one feel better about life and love and presented serious topics with the sunny side up. God bless all of you at Librivox.

PG and Kara Shallenberg!
All right!!! KS is a one of my very favorite readers. I liked this book more and more as it went along - but the ending came rather abruptly - suddenly Sally was married to Ginger! One oddity was the jocular way the Spanish Influenza was referred to. I think that part must have been written in the very earliest days before the horror of that pandemic became manifest in 1918-19, tho the book was not printed until afterwards, 1922.

Of all Wodehouse's books, I think this may be his best & funniest. And even with somewhat more depth than his norm.

I must admit, with each new Wodehouse book I listen to, I am becoming a diehard fan. :-)
Sally is an honest-hearted girl who seeks to help others and always looks at the positive side of any situation. Enter Ginger who makes a muddle of everything. Who else could see the positive aspects of someone like that besides Sally?
A positively wonderful story, the narrator does a wonderful job with reading and voices. Enjoy!

Delightfully funny tale
This is a delightfully funny story about an intelligent, honest, strong and warm-hearted woman. The cast of characters is quite a contrast to our young heroine and set her off nicely.
Kara Schallenberg gives another excellent reading - you can tell that she is enjoying Sally's adventures as much as her listeners are.

The Adventures of Sally
I really enjoyed this audio book!! I highly recommend it! the reader did a good job and acted out the voices a bit to help the listener follow along.
